Albertsons New Promo Ideas!

 

1albertsons

This is an awesome promotion! Basically, even without coupons, you will get 50% off your order. You would spend the $30 in your first transaction, then get back a $15 coupon. Then on your next order you spend another $30, this time give them the $15 coupon and you will pay $15, then get another $15 coupon. Repeat! Now combine this with coupons and doublers, you are doing some serious money saving.

Buy $30, Get $15 Cat Promo: Buy $30 (before coupons) in participating products, get $15 catalina (coupon) to use on your next shopping trip. This promo has been reported as going until Aug 11.

  1. I just got back from the Lee Albie-got 18 jars of Ragu-used (9) printable coupons and 5 doublers-paid $16 out of pocket and got $15 CAT! Who-hoo!!!!

  2. Jennifer says:

    When I click on the IE or FF to print off the coupons for Ragu, it keeps asking me to install the coupon printer (even though I’ve already done it). Is this normal? The second time it installed it, but didn’t print them. Do you have to keep installing to get mulitple coupons?

    Also, it keeps coming up in Spanish (which I know you can click English on the bottom) and I’m wondering if this is my computer problem or if it’s done that to anyone else?

    Thanks-

  3. All my 9 coupons were in Spanish, but Albies took them just the same. I know I have that “install coupon printer” issue if I forget and am using the wrong browser-one they don’t support….Good luck-hope it works for you! You can print it as many times as you want it seems…

  4. I just want to warn everyone who goes to the Wenatchee Albertsons. The assistant manager, Amy, does not like coupon ladies.(We are not the first to have issues with her ) My Daugher and I went last night with 3 of these transaction each and had everything lined out. We had done our homework !! The Assistant Manager said we had to spend $30 after the coupons we tendered to get the $15 catalines back. One transaction did work and we were informed by her that if the catalines did print out she would not honor them. She stated that it was wrong of us to come in with coupons and expect to do a transation of $30 and only put out a meager amount of funds. We said we were doing it correctly and that is what the ad told us to do. She stated again she would not honor it even if the machine printed it the way we were saying. Believe me — we called corporate right at the door. Of course, they will get back to us. LOL..Meanwhile, we drove 2 hours for nothing, spend how many hours calculating to make sure we had things lined out just right. I had pepsi purchases I had planned and did not get. We had to leave 2 carts of items. We left and then went back about 20 minutes later and requested that we return the items we had purchased. Our money was returned on the one purchase but the Manager lady kept all the coupons we had used- in a stack right in front of her ! Go figure. She stated coupons were not cash– and she would not honor the catalina as cash….So we will go to Ellensburg from now on…. Got home at 1:30 am….off to swath hay now… still frustrated ! But we still love this site and will continue to do our best !! Thanks for listening.

  5. Lori, that is horrific! I am so sorry, I can’t even begin to imagine how frustrated you must have been. I finally found a store with a manager who understands that couponers are people too. 🙂 He also understands that he is getting paid when we use coupons, maybe not that day, but he will get paid. Plus, the friendlier and more helpful they are, the more likely you are to come back to their store and create more business. Your story just sucks! 🙂

  6. Oh MY!!! Lori that is awful! I hope you give corporate an earful and demand an apology from that manager. Plus get something for your trouble. That was so WRONG! And for the store to not give you your catalina when it did work like it was supposed to?..grrrr. So wrong. Make sure when you do talk to corporate that you tell them you would like for them to email or mail to you Albertsons official coupon policy – and in paticular in regards to coupons and promos. That way the next time you go into the store you can have that with you if you were to run into another “confused cashier” . So sorry!!! ((HUGS))

  7. Just wanted to say, the stayfree deal worked for me yesterday with no problems at all (even with the cashier that hates coupons!). The ALL deal looks like a good one too!

  8. I just got back from the Albies on Gage-got 7 Dove shampoo/conditioner in one transaction and then 10 boxes of 500 count Q-tips in another-got $27 back in Cat for EACH transaction! Who-hoo!!

  9. Karri-I don’t have All coupons from the Red Plum from 8-2 (last Sunday) Did I over look it or is something missing?

    • We didnt get it in our area..but we did get it in the june RP! If you want lots, you can always buy them on couponclippers.com

  10. Frugal Chic just updated that the Ragu coupon is no longer available.

  11. Well I had some good coupon Karma for ONCE in Portland, OR with my sister last night! We did:
    3 ragu transactions-paid $1 each
    2 all transactions-pd $2 for one and 0 for the other b/c I had a $2 off q
    1 lipton sides (30 of them) trans-pd 0
    2 poptart transactions 10 each-pd 0 and will get back $10 in the mail

    she spent $4 and will get back $10
    I spent $1 and will get back $10
    WHY CAN’T IT ALWAYS BE LIKE THAT IN YAKIMA, WA???? IT WAS GREAT! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! THEY EVEN LET US USE 5 DOUBLERS-2 from sun and 3 from wed:) IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!! ALL OUR NEWSPAPER GATHERING, COUPON CLIPPING, SCHEMING FOR A GOOD CAUSE! THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FOR SHARING ALL YOUR INFO WITH ALL OF US!

    THE ONLY SLIGHT HANG UP WAS THAT ON ONE SET WE USED A $10 CAT FROM LAST WEEK. IT WOULDN’T SCAN SO SHE JUST ENTERED $10 GROCERY AND THAT BROUGHT OUR TOTAL DOWN AND DID NOT PRINT THE CATS-I AM CALLING CATALINA RIGHT NOW AND IF THEY WILL NOT MAIL ME ONE, I WILL BE RETURNING THAT TRANSACTION.
